[no title]

Although I have traveled far and wide, I am never far from the Monongahela Valley. I am a second-generation American; the Old Countries are never far from me. The wood, and hills, rivers and “cricks” have given me an appreciation for nature.

     Bright Star's title comes from a sonnet Keats wrote during the time he knew Brawn. This is a well-done portrayal of their romance, doomed as it was. Keats' poetic career had only begun to earn him some money, but his tuberculosis worsened. I include a link about Fanny later in her life.


And a link to the sonnet:


     On my first trip to Europe, I went to Rome. While walking down the Spanish Steps, I passed by the house where Keats died. Little did I realize how he, an others, would come to influence me.
